how much would a new bed be / where from ?

I'm moving soon and will be buying a new bed. In the last 2 places I've been in the bed was provided so I've never really had to buy one.

How much is this going to cost me? I'd really like to be under $400 all in. In fact I'd preferably like to just get the mattress first and then the non-essentials ie whatever goes under it, some months later.

I've looked it up online but that doesnt really help me. I'll always find *something* in any price range I choose, but that doesnt really say much about quality etc. Plus I dont even know if I'm looking in the right places. Can anyone advise?

Thanks!
Dan

You can't buy a mattress online...you have to actually go into a store and lay down on it. Don't cheap out on it, you'll regret it in a couple years.

You really have to go try out each bed as it depends on your comfort level. That being said, i've seen some ok ones at that price range at Sears Outlet and Costco.

PS - I do have back pain, that might be relevant to mention.
PPS - do we get to try out the mattresses at Ikea?


It seems like Ikea was a clear winner here, and I've seen on their website they provide a 90 day warranty which is real good of them. I've seen a number of good choices there but its hard to decide which ones are better. I'm seeing my chiro today so I'll ask him but he's not a helpful guy so I dont anticipate much help.

It seems to two main categories (within my budget) are Foam Mattresses and Spring Mattresses.

Foam mattresses - "Foam moulds itself to your body and provides firm support while also being soft and resilient."

Spring mattresses - come in spring coil and active-spring coil.

It seems from this description that foam is the way to go but I wonder if that's just marketing speak.

Otherwise I'm seeing these options (and others similar). I dont expect someone to go to the trouble of making my mind up for me but I wonder if anyone's used any of these or something similar?

MOSHULT

Thanks a lot!
